Skrillex is now a 3 time grammy nominee

Kanye was not nominated for album of the year (MBDTF was eligable this year because the nominating period is weird)

Weird nominees all the way around. They got some stuff incredibly right (Bon Iver for Song and Record of the Year, Decemberists nominated twice for down by the water) and some stuff unbelievably wrong (this is normal). Not legacy acts in the album of the year category is a nice change (unless you count foo fighters in the requisite rock slot).

I've never paid attention to the grammys before, and I don't think I'll start now.

There *was* nothing wrong with it... until I was about twelve years old and that no-talent ass clown became famous and started winning Grammys.

Cut Copy eh. I didn't expect that name on there. I didn't think they were THAT popular.

I must have caught it just in time, because I got what you were saying, and I laughed.

Does it really count as a nomination if it's best remix and it's his song remixed by someone else?

Also, I clearly know nothing about Grammys. What is the difference between record of the year and song of the year? 4/5 of of the nominations are the same.

one is a songwriting award and the other is a performance award

Also, since when is Bon Iver a "new" artist? 5 years isn't really new.

More importantly, how are Mumford and Sons still getting nominations from an album that came out in 09?!?!??!?!
